Made by fermentation, Evolva’s L-arabinose is fully renewable and sustainable, it has a high-purity level and no hydrochloric acid is used in the manufacturing process. It is FEMA GRAS approved for use in food and beverages.

According to Evola, L-Arabinose taste profile is well-suited for use in products such as yogurt, chocolate, soft drinks, ice cream, cereal, power bars and confectionary.

“As people around the world continue to strive to live a healthier lifestyle, we are committed to helping our customers create healthier, more sustainable solutions,” said Oliver Walker, CEO of Evolva.

“With this launch we are confirming our ability to deliver innovations that support human health and wellbeing.”
